Check fuses first. Owners manual will tell all the fuses for power steering. Codes would be next. These tell where to look first.

Check the power steering fluid and make sure it is at the correct level. Check for leaks underneath the vehicle. Does the vehicle make a groaning noise when the wheels are being turned? If so, there is air in the system. Likely causes are a fluid leak, bad pump, or bad rack and pinion.

Power steering problem only noticable when I have to crank the wheel hard for a sharp turn. 1 own a 2008 Ford F150 XLT Super Crew. What could be my problem my truck has lost its power steering? One day it...

If your Super Crew has ever had the steering stops removed (stops are installed preventing too sharp of a turn in extra long vehicles), it will cause the power steering control to extend beyond its normal range, and possible blow out a seal in the power steering pump.

It does sound like your pump may have failed, based on your description.
